Default Well I was going to...

As many of you know I have been saying that I was going to convert one of my 12 Ga shotguns into a HD gun. While on my trek though The Preston Ky. Court Days festival I found a Mossberg 590 that was priced to sell so I guess I wont have to do any of that. It had a couple scratches but was new/unfired. I'm sure I'll make a change or two to it before it's all said and done but I guess I"ll be selling one of the others because I really do not need four 12 gauges

I remember the days when I ONLY owned 4 shotguns. I used to feel . . . unsatisfied!

Haaahahaaha!!

Well...I'd love to get a 20 gauge. I see my situation as a good one to have. And it might end up like my rim fire situation. I just might end up with a lot of them

Congrats on the buy. I have the same 590 and love it. I bought some rubber coated hooks at home depot and installed them on the inside of my bedroom closet right above the door. I keep the 590 mounted up there for home defense. Hidden in plain sight but easily within reach.

I've only got one and I just got it a month or so ago. I gave waaaay too much for it but I needed a shotgun and dad really wanted that Sig P226 I'm happy with my $500 pistol for a $200 Mossberg

Congrats guys on your new shottys!

Drum, I only own one shotgun! And its a 20ga bolt action. So I will gladly help you take care of your "too many 12 gauges" problem.

Seriously though, my next shotgun will probably be a Mossberg in 20ga. There's one that holds 8+1. I figure that'll be a pretty decent HD weapon.

The 590A1 is 8+1 also, but 12 gauge.

My Father in Law uses a Rem 20 ga for turkeys. Gets two a year and hardly ever shoots it otherwise. Can't argue with those results. But my 12s with a xtra full choke turns their heads to jelly in a hurry. So I guess I don't have to be in a hurry.
